how to draw a dogwood flower
This is one of the easiest flowers to draw. Simply start with an X.
From the edge of one line start rounding out the top of the pedal. You will want to make the round edge drop in the middle. It will look almost like a heart.
After you draw in the four petals shade in the very center where you dropped the line (Dogwood flowers have a naturally darkened part of the petal) Then you can draw in the little circles in the center of the flower. And then the leaves and stem.
The stem is easy to draw consisting of two close lines. The leaves are simple as well, just note the basic shape. In drawing nothing has to be perfect, in fact it is small imperfections that will make your artwork unique. Next you will want to shade in the flower. I like to concentrate on the area between the petals and the very center.
